A Colorado district attorney has asked a judge to review a 110-year prison sentence given to a 26-year-old truck driver who says his brakes failed in a deadly 2019 crash. Rogel Aguilera-Mederos was convicted on 27 counts in the crash, which killed four people in Jefferson County, Colorado. During sentencing on December 13, Judge A. Bruce Jones said state law required the sentences for those counts to be served consecutively, leading to a 110-year prison term. More than 4.6 million people have since signed a petition asking Colorado Gov. Jared Polis to grant Aguilera-Mederos clemency. Kim Kardashian also urged Polis to commute Aguilera-Mederos’ sentence on Twitter.”I pray that Governor Polis, who has been a leader on supporting reforms that increase human dignity in the legal system, will commute his sentence,” Kardashian wrote on Twitter. Jefferson County District Attorney Alexis King filed a motion Tuesday asking a judge to review Aguilera-Mederos’ sentence. The motion requested an expedited hearing as soon as December 24.”The purpose for the People’s expedited request is so that the named victims in the case, as well as their families, have an opportunity to be heard by the trial court who is fully aware of the facts of the case,” the motion reads. King says in the motion that her office has talked to the families of the four victims in the crash, who want the court to hear their thoughts on sentence modification as quickly as possible. Following Aguilera-Mederos’ sentencing, King had released a statement scolding a prosecutor for social media posts “in poor taste.” Deputy District Attorney Kayla Wildeman posted a photo of a brake shoe she received as a gift from a colleague on Facebook, leading Aguilera-Menderos’ attorney to call for disciplinary action. King released a statement that said she “addressed” the post internally and that the brake shoe was “not a piece of evidence from the case.”

  1. Are they out of their collective minds?! Serial killers get lesser sentences. It’s horrible, but it was an accident. How does this sentence help the victims’ families?

  2. #KaylaWildeman is yet another #corrupt, #useless, #dangerous prosecutor, like #ThomasBinger, these #clowns don’t produce worth in our society, they take it, and they send a message to society that it isn’t worth becoming a police officer, trucker, or any other position that contributes to a productive society.
